Overview

The Misfits' legend grew over the years following the original band's breakup to warrant an increasing number of compilations like Legacy of Brutality and the boldly titled Collection (followed some years later by, but of course, Collection II). Sometimes worthwhile, sometimes incredibly slapdash, they fueled the fire but still did the fans a major disservice, especially given the repetition and overlap on many releases. Though it has its flaws, the coffin-shaped Box Set finally put things as right as seems possible with the Misfits, exhaustively covering all the releases the late-'70s/early-'80s version of the group put out (the exception being Walk Among Us due to a label-rights situation). The first two discs feature, respectively, the material on the two Collection releases and Legacy of Brutality, Evilive, and Earth A.D.. The third compiles a slew of different demo and recording sessions, including the original trio lineup (with Danzig on electric piano) on the "Cough/Cool"/"She" single takes, while the fourth presents the planned-but-never-released-as-such Static Age for the first time. Though recording quality itself varies widely over the discs and arguably some of the mastering could have been sharper (Danzig's own occasional remastering jobs in previous years weren't used here), it's still an explosive and exhaustive effort that any fan needs. The biggest downside: While the sessions on the third disc are thoroughly detailed, the studio cuts on the first two discs are placed without comment as to which sessions produced them, while aside from Evilive and Earth A.D. most of the time it's not clear in the slightest which takes were the ones actually released at the time by the band. The accompanying booklet does a good job in making up for this, though; besides a great band history from then-roadie/photographer and future Danzig bassist Eerie Von, there are complete lyrics for every song, a slew of amazing photographs from concerts and other shoots, and an exhaustive discography.

If you like anything by the Misfits you'll probably like it all. And if you want more you may want to consider the boxset as it has everything and more! Photos, unreleased material, live stuff, alternate versions/takes. And it's all packaged in a cool coffin shaped box! I recommend this to everyone who's a fan of anything by the Misfits, Samhain, or Danzig.

This set is a must for a true Misfits fan. Aside from getting the previously released materials this set includes rare outtakes, B-sides, alternate versions, and songs never available until now, like "Spook City USA." The packaging is superb with it's coffin shaped box, red velvet lining, and Fiend Club Badge. All of the jewel cases are slim-line style and jet black with silver embossed track listings, except for the Static Age album, which is a jet black jewel case with the silver embossing, but in a slide panel format as oppossed to a hinged case. Very impressive. The 28 page booklet is very informative and offers some great photos. The only downfall of this set is the printing of the lyrics. All lyrics are printed, but alot of them are either incorrect, half there, or not even close to being right. It makes the reader/listener wonder which set of lyrics they used....the actual finished set or the "working" set?
